Print Your Own Ribbon Tutorial--Part I

print your own ribbon tutorial


Can't find the printed ribbon you need? Print it yourself!


What we need is to find the image on internet (or take a picture); copy/paste the image to the MS WORD template (click to download) ; print the image on Avery light fabric transfer; cut the fabric transfer to 3/8", 7/8" or 1.5" strips then iron the image to ribbon.

1. Find image online or take your own picture. I took a picture of the penguins on my daughter's dress, copy/paste several times to make a ribbon pattern. Open the image using Photo Shop Elements or MS Paint (Click here to see how to copy image and paste to a template using MS Paint). In example below, I want to copy/paste the whole image to the template. What I need to do is to "select all" (command+a for Mac or ctrl+a for PC), then copy.

***Important, you need to "Flip the image using the software, or select mirror image (reverse image) from your ink jet printer settings.
